Leaning Communities Today
Learning better together across campuses
Learning Communities have been the hallmark of collaboration on many campuses for the last century, but often times Learning Community faculty and practitioners rarely havean opportunity to share their challenges and triumphs with like minds across campuses.
This is where University of North Carolina at Greensboro and Western Carolina University joined together: two campuses miles apart working on a common goal - Learning Communities. The 2013 Lilly Conference on College and University Teaching at Greensboro offers Learning Communities a unique partnership - an opportunity for us to come together and share what is happening on our campuses across the state and across the country.
Session: Learning Communities Today
This day-long meeting is open to anyone attending the 2013 Lilly Conference on College and University Teaching at Greensboro or anyone wishing to attend the meeting separate from Lilly.
The meeting will be an informal gathering of current and future learning community practitioners to discuss what works, what doesn’t and grand ideas to help build successful and sustainable learning communities. Participants will be asked to put forth potential focus topics of interest to generate an inclusive guided conversation. The expertise will come from the participants attending, based on their current campus projects.

Non-Attendees of the 2013 Lilly Conference at Greensboro: $100 mini-conference fee
